read through the instructions on the DIY homepage for the basics and.
1. Take the time to build a technique to get you through the entire job......You'll spend ten times as long if you try to slap it on and sand.......
2. Apply thin coats.......(easier to control and less sanding)
3. Don't try to be perfect with each pass. Leave trowel marks. You can use a mud knife to scrape them down when they dry.
4. Bevel the coats from the drywall joint back to the drywall sheet.(Apply the compound and then on your final pass of each coat, angle the lenght of the blade so it bevels or feathers back to the drywall sheet.) Saves alot of sanding.
5. Use many mud pans as it's easier to keep working than stopping. Soak them all over night.......
